tea bags a reddish brown.
To make a mottled looking egg with onion skins, wrap the paper thin skins around the eggs, place in a pot with water about 1 inch above the eggs, put a few more skins on top and boil for about 5 minutes, then set aside for an hour. Remove to paper towels to dry.
With coffee & tea bags, you put 4 T of coffee grounds or about 12 tea bags, 1 T white vinegar & water, enough to cover eggs, in a pot and boil the eggs for about 15 minutes. I usually cut open the tea bags.
I love the colors of eggs dyed this way, the old fashioned way! This must have been how it was done long ago!
Now what to do with all these hard boiled eggs? Egg salad, deviled eggs…any suggestions?
Have a great day! Debbie
